There's no valid honest program I know of for that kind of procedure.

For the most part you'll have to uninstall the stuff you've downloaded and installed in the Add/Remove Programs control panel and just righ-click delete the stuff you've downloaded but not installed.

1. Click Start - Search - All Files And Folders, then delete everything that appears under:

*.TMP

C:\TEMP\*.*

C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\*.*

This will get rid of the loads of temporary files that you no doubt have in your computer. (y)

2. Click Start - Run, type in:

CLEANMGR /SAGESET:1

then click OK. When the Disk Cleanup window appears, place a checkmark in everything, except "Compress Old Files", then click OK. Reboot your computer, click Start - Run, type in:

CLEANMGR /SAGERUN:1

then click OK.

This will get rid of unnecessary files over and above what Disk Cleanup would normally look for. (y)
